State Police Sergeant Terminated for Disciplinary Reasons



    A state sergeant has been fired from the Connecticut State Police Department, police confirm.

    Sgt. Michael Hassett's termination will be effective Monday, Aug. 8., state police said. 

    While it's unclear the exact reasons why Hassett is being let go, a public information officer sent NBC Connecticut a list of disciplinary offenses and rules of conduct that appear to have been violated. 

    The alleged violations include failing to display the proper attitude of someone in his position, committing an intentional act of deception and failing to discreetly carry a firearm when not in uniform.

    The president of the state police union Andy Matthews told NBC Connecticut he cannot comment on any disciplinary actions against a current member.
